As fall arrives and October’s cool nights approach we know it’s that time of the year, time for the Piedmont Interstate Fair. Our theme this year is “Family, Friends and Fun, All in One!”. So come to the fair with your family, and your friends and get ready to have some fun!
Our Board of Directors, Officers and Staff are privileged to bring the 2019 Piedmont Interstate Fair to our community for the enjoyment of all. Our goal is to reach and entertain every age group and provide entertainment, competition, contests, educational opportunities, delicious food and just plain fun for everybody.
Our exhibitors have labored through the year to ensure that their entries are worthy of presentation and your attention in our exhibit halls. The House of Flowers, Commercial Building and Agriculture Building all provide opportunities for competition, exhibition and education. The cattle barn presents a large number of farm animals and a petting zoo, a truly educational experience for children and adults. We encourage everyone to take the time to enjoy the opportunity of seeing all these areas and embracing the agricultural roots of the fair. Encourage your family and friends to join in the fun and be a part of this event.
Reithoffer Shows will once again provide amusement rides on our Midway and games of chance, talent and skill. This year we welcome back an interactive Butterfly Display and a new attraction, Jurassic Kingdom. Yes, dinosaurs will be at the Fair!
Our food vendors on the Midway and the Food Court provide a wonderful variety of culinary experiences. From corn dogs and funnel cakes to fried pickles and cotton candy, everyone will have a favorite when they leave.
This past January at the 2019 GA/SC Association of Agricultural Fairs Convention, held in Atlanta, our Fair had the distinction of winning the Best Display Using Unique Form or Fair Theme competition. I also have the honor of being the president of the South Carolina Association of Fairs. We are proud of the fact that our Fair has now been a state winner for fifteen of the past sixteen years. This accomplishment shines a bright light on our Fair, Spartanburg and our associated counties.
Our gratitude goes out to our sponsors for their faithful support. These sponsors provide the financial support that allows us to pay premiums for so many categories, provide entertainment, and help us keep ticket prices affordable. Please show your appreciation by supporting them at every opportunity during the coming year.
Our deepest appreciation is extended to all of our exhibitors, and those who volunteer their time and services to bring the Fair to our community. We are humbled by and grateful for our volunteers and employees who work so hard to bring the community a successful event. The Fair is a family tradition that never grows old. Please join us at this year’s Fair. Everything and everyone is here, "Family, Friends and Fun, All in One!
